We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

Representative Text

1 Go with me to Gethsemane,
The Savior bowed in prayer there see,
While in His bitter agony,
He sweats great drops of blood for thee.

O not by silver, nor by gold,
Nor things corruptible as these,
But by His precious, priceless blood,
Christ gained us our release.

2 Go! see Him bound of hands and feet,
While scourge and thong and biting lash,
Laid on by brutal soldiers’ hands,
Draw streams of blood from many a gash. [Refrain]

3 Go! see again that life-blood flow,
From thorns that pierce His kindly brow,
While crowds contemptuous stand around,
And, mocking, low before Him bow. [Refrain]

4 Go with me now to Calvary,
There see Him hanging on the tree
Until the last drops of His blood
Was shed to set this vile world free. [Refrain]
